I was in this restaurant for a formal dinner, the place has an outdoor gazebo that allows in the warm seasons of dining al fresco. The interior of the restaurant is decorated in style back in line with the history of the venue. You have the chance to spend a pleasant evening thanks to friendly service and interesting dishes. Prices... More

Meats are their specialty but of course a great pasta dish to begin your meal is to be found. Reservations is recommended.

We had our last meal in Rome here. The food was delicious. Not fancy but really satisfying. We had the parma and melon and vegie frite for apps. Very generous portions, really more than we could eat. We could have stopped there but had two pasta dishes on top of the apps. My carbonara was excellent, the pasta was wonderful... More

My wife and I went there not knowing what to expect. We are Canadians that don't really speak Italian and were treated by Italian only speaking staff. Two of them had a broken English, but they really did their best to explain the menu and give recommendations. The service started out strong, but as the clients started coming in, we... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
